Krishnamurti offers provocative, new, and sensitive answers to perennial questions about:
- Why relationships are difficult?
- The difference between pleasure and desire.
- Why is sex a problem in my life?
- What is chastity?
- Am I really in love?
- How can I live with another without conflict?
"There is no escape from relationship. In that relationship, which is the mirror in which we can see ourselves, we can discover what we are, our reactions, our prejudices, our fears, depression, anxieties, loneliness, sorrow, pain, grief. We can also discover whether we lose or there is no such thing as love. Se, we will examine this question of relationship because that is the basis of love." - J. Krishnamurti, Madras, India, 1982."Why does the mind think about sex at all? Why? Why has it become a central issue in your life? Sex becomes an extraordinary, difficult and complex problem so long as you do not understand the mind, which thinks about the problem. The act itself can never be a problem but the thought about the act creates the problem." - J. Krishnamurti, The First and Last Freedom.
About The Author:
Jiddu Krishnamurti, was a world renowned figure both in the West and in the East. He was born on May 11, 1895 and died on February 17, 1986. He remains today one of the most important philosophical and spiritual thinkers of the 20th century. In the West he is most commonly classified as a philosopher and an educator. Yet in a very real sense he is not easy to categorize as his unique work is truly trans disciplinary and is not grounded in any particular tradition or school of thought. His singular probing work into the nature and limits of thought and knowledge would touch many fields from philosophy to quantum physics to religion. In terms of philosophical questions proper he would have important contributions to make all the way from religion to ethics and even aspects of philosophy of mind.
